Portland is lucky that we have public financing for local city council elections.
This year the voters decide on the November ballot if we want to keep publicly financed campaigns.
Tonight most of the candidates seeking public funds are holding an event. The are running against a very wealth man who's family own many properties in downtown Portland. They need to qualify fro public funds to run against him. Learn more tonight at this free event today ( Friday Jan. 8th ) at Dough Nations Pizza at 1027 NE Alberta.
